Yes, exactly.

It's Gnome 3 and gnome-terminal, all from Buster. Orca is frmo
experimental (3.31.4-1). Just tried with gedit, which is affected as
well. To reproduce:

1. Open gedit with a file that has some lines, maybe 10+.
2. Move the cursor to the beginning of the document.
3. Keep Arrow Down pressed for 3 seconds.
4. Orca will read line by line, although the cursor reached the last
   line long ago.

Best regards
